Students may choose between two assessment methods, according to their individual learning needs:
- Assessment system 1: Continuous assessment + end-of-course test:
- 60% of the final course grade is gained through continuous assessment course assignments. Students’ ID will be verified at the end-of-course test.
- 40% of the course grade will be based on the end-of-course exam, where knowledge and competences acquired through the course will be tested. It will also serve as an ID check.
- Assessment system 2: Test on acquired competences + end-of-course test:
- 50% of the final grade will be based on the mark obtained in the Test on acquired competences . This test aims at assessing to what extent students have developed and acquired the competences linked to the course.
- 50% of the course grade will be based on the end-of-course exam, where knowledge and competences acquired through the course will be tested. It will also serve as an ID check.
